Whilst most of us lust after a DB1, a Vega, or even an RB6, many of us have to be more modest in our aspirations.
With this in mind the postie paid me a visit this week.
Under his arm he was carrying a Hyper H2 Pro, the latest offering from the Taiwanese 1/8 rally cross experts Hobao.
This kit, distributed in the UK by CML, has an RRP a sniff below £150 but a little scout around the net can see it winging it's way to you for only £135.
My initial un-boxing suggests my money has been well spent. There are lots of sturdy looking parts and a beautifully machined and engraved alloy chassis, reminiscent of a Losi 22 and not massively dissimilar to an RB6.
There is even a full set of wheels/tyres and inserts.
Over the next few days I shall be retiring to the man cave to wield the wrenches in the direction of this box of goodies.
I plan to find out if it's the bargain it appears to be.
I'll take some pics and make a few notes so I can write up a build report so be sure to check back.
